    How to stop the renewed rise of Fascism

    Why, with a Land Value Tax of course...

    This article was published in the Georgist Magazine in response to BREXIT (July 2016) but is as equally relevant now as it was then....

    Enjoy...

    Yep....There it is....This is why we never seem to get anywhere my Friends... and why we're willingly allowing the clock to be turned backward....

    Unfortunately, something I've witnessed too frequently in the over forty-five years of activism that I've participated.......Banging my head against the walls, floors, cell bars, fists and nightsticks of this crazy mixed up world...

    Too many of us still consider the work required for 'changing' the world as being too hard to even begin..(besides lip service)....to even begin a simple conversation about a rational direction....and a simple solution.....because it challenges the status quo, what? Too much? Its too hard, right?

    Quite often the Right thing and the Hard thing are the Same thing. Don't be fooled into believing these are lost causes.....because only the lost ones are those worth fighting Brothers and Sisters...

    O me, oh my....OmeOmy...left us here to die...

    It appears most TZM'rs would rather debate and example (self-promote) personal intelligence and its relation to skin color, race, sex (getting some or Not?), believing or not believing in some higher power.... Aliens...or Trump...

    ....gotta sky.....

    "Hope I die before I get old" (The Who/My Generation 1966) Too late for me.....Thank Goodness....

    That's the condition of man Today. We are here on this type of Forum trying to better ourselves but out in the real World, Ego & Pride rules the day. We still bring this baggage with us at times but at least we are trying to change. You can't really say that about the greater population because they would rather spend their time Following the crowd & believing in the "normalities".

    IMO the situation out there is much more dire than some people want to believe. And the reason why I say that is because the problems are much bigger than in what we can see( Economics, Politics, Religion etc..). They run much much deeper than that in the places most people even fail to recognize. The Problems begin in our Minds. In the places people want to look into the least.

    This is very Troubling ..

    Perhaps....let's hope some collective self reflection takes hold soon, heh?

    None of us is as smart as we think we are.....that's our ego speaking....and when the ego is the loudest voice in our head...we become deaf....we become numb, we become dumb....'comfortably' so....

    @ Ernest.... you're right Bro....Most folks are clueless as to how dire our situation is and would rather go shopping than put any thought or effort into making some changes, whether the changes are personal or community/Globally based.

    I can't see it. The education system has been dumb-down because we can't bear to imply someone is stupid.

    This guy has the right idea: I am better than your kids.



    The scary thing is that these people who have been herded through the education system despite not being educated are now dispensing drugs in hospitals.
